Abstract

[During the last decades, all OECD countries have implemented public sector reforms to increase the efficiency and to enhance the effectiveness and performance of public organizations (Pollitt and Bouckaert, 2000). These reforms have also taken place in higher education (HE), more or less to achieve the same objectives (Dobbins, Knill and Vögtle, 2011). The reforms, which OECD countries have been confronted with, have to a large extent been theoretically classified under the concept of New Public Management (NPM), emphasizing the accountability of the public sector and the focus on results (Hood, 1995).]
